BVB Dortmund winger Marco Reus admits he has not been at his best after returning to action following a broken toe in August.
After nearly a month on the sidelines, Reus was back in the starting line-up for the 1-1 draw at TSG Hoffenheim on September 23, but has been poor following his injury and was only used as a second-half substitute in their crucial clash against Bayern München last Sunday.
"I was out for three weeks, couldn't put any weight on the foot, and could only do a little upper body work," he admitted to the German FA's official website.
"Then you simply need time to get your rhythm back. And to be honest, the games I have played since then have not been up to what I expect of myself."
However, the Germany international is not overly concerned and knows it'll only take a single moment for things to start clicking again.
"In football things can go quickly," he explained. "A goal, a move that comes off – and then everything can immediately click back into place.
"I know myself that I'm not quite where I want to be yet. But I also know that that this will change quickly."
